Cracked Tooth? Your 4 Best Treatment Options

Dunwoody GA Cosmetic Dental Treatments

People who have cracked a tooth admit that the experience can be very painful. Teeth with deep fractures tend to be quite sensitive. A cracked tooth may have dangerously sharp edges that can cut your tongue or lips. At the very least, a cracked or chipped tooth is an eyesore you should see a Dunwoody dentist about.

But if you have a cracked tooth, what can you do about it?

Here are the four most popular solutions for repairing cracked teeth.

  1. Dental Bonding and Veneers

Our Dunwoody dental bonding and veneers are both excellent cosmetic fixes for front teeth that have small chips in them. They both cover small gaps to create a more even finish.

  1. Dental Onlays

A back molar that has one of its “peaks” chipped off may qualify for an onlay. This is a large, durable, white “lab made” filling that’s created outside the mouth and then fitted right over your tooth in one piece.

  1. Dental Cap/Crown

When the damage to your tooth’s enamel is more extensive, then you may need to cover the whole thing. Dental crowns are strong and durable and can be made to look exactly like your natural tooth.

  1. Root Canal

Teeth that have been split to the nerve usually need endodontic therapy. A root canal will stop the pain in your tooth and can save it from extraction. After a root canal, your tooth will be covered with a dental crown.
